The Chapel Experience

There are times when a soul yearns for a chapel for a service, a season or for community. Mariners Chapel blends traditional and contemporary elements to provide you an interactive and reflective experience, including weekly communion. It’s a beautiful place for you to grow closer to God and respond to him in unique and personal ways together with the family of God.

Sundays at 9 & 11a | Listen to Chapel Messages (Audio)

We invite you to Sundays at 9 & 11a for an interactive worship experience designed to encounter and engage with God.

The Chapel service incorporates live biblical teaching and music that utilizes response stations of communion, candle lighting, and prayers, that is intended to help us (re)form our lives around the life of Jesus.

  • The services on Sundays at 9 & 11a are a reflective worship experience that incorporate weekly communion and response stations
